Mrozek’s Vatzlav is a spoof of the rights of humankind or a manual on what NOT to do with your freedom!
Mrozek’s Vatzlav welcomes the audience to an enchanted island of enTRAPment wherein a genius professor pimps his own daughter, Justice, and where the generous job-creating entrepreneurs are blood-sucking vampires and an old, blind guardian of the law, named Oedipus, proclaims that “In the dark, good is indistinguishable from evil.”

The Trap Door Theatre has been invited to Poland!!
Our greatest inspiration, the Teatr Witkacy in Zakopane, Poland has invited our ensemble to collaborate with Artistic Director Andrzej Dziuk on a very special Witkiewicz project that will play in Poland before we bring it back home for you.
With both theaters being small in size, we need help raising the airfare for our group to travel there this summer. Please consider donating to make this dream come true.
